Developing feelings for a 'friend' - did I do bad?

I started a postgraduate course 3 months ago and there was a girl who stood out a fair bit. There were various issues that stopped me from considering dating her so I went down the friend route. She seemed interested in me at first - we ended up being alone together twice on nights out with others from the class, walking around London and the river, but I, not interested in any kind of intimacy, kept these meetings platonic. It's only recently that I've gotten myself together mentally, gotten to know her better and decided I like what I see - am I too late? What should I do to move from a new friendship back to that stage of 'initial attraction'? [more inside]

Need awesome gift ideas for a girlfriend who is upset with me

I bought my girlfriend an accessory for her phone on amazon a few days ago and it came in the mail yesterday. So this morning, I say "I have a surprise for you!" to which she replies "is it my accessory?" I said in a sarcastic fashion naaaah of course not! I joke like this all the time. Now she had a particularly awful day today. And when I saw her this evening, I gave her the accessory and said surprise! Normally when I do this I get "the look" and she teases me. But she was really upset. Perhaps she thought my surprise was something that would make her feel better from her particularly awful day. Now it wasn't the immature upset, but more of a disappointed, you're not in touch with my feelings upset. So I'd like to do something really sweet for her and/or give her a real surprise. Something out of the box. Ideas?

I don't want to rush her but the bottom line is that I'm completely in love with this girl.

This last June I picked up the phone and called a friend I went to high school with... I literally hadn't seen or spoken to her for 12 years (since 1995). We went out for drinks and since then we've been spending time together about once a week (maybe a little less), having dinner together and things like that. A little over a month ago I told her that I really like her and asked if there’s any chance that maybe she felt the same... here’s what she wrote back to me in an email: [more inside]

Fun date in DC

I've lived in Washington DC for 5 years, so you'd think I know what good stuff there is to do. And I guess I've done a lot of it, but now I want to take my girlfriend out on a fun date that isn't the monuments, the (national) mall, a movie, or 'just dinner.' Any good suggestions for Saturday evening? There has got to be a boatload of fun non-tourist stuff to do here!
